About R'Kenia

15 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
I am a professional dog trainer (CPDT), certified with the certification council of professional dog trainers. I am a member of APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers). A mother of three children and one German Shepherd mix named Lilly. I earned my veterinary technician degree in 2005 from NOVA community college in Northern VA and worked in the field for 5-6 years before becoming a trainer and doggy care taker.

My home offers a large partially fenced in back yard that has lots of trees and plenty of space to romp. I offer daily walks for dogs who are require a little extra exercise.

Although I like to have crates for the safety of my home and the boarding dogs I am more than willing to accept dogs who are well behaved without one.

I offer boarding in my home for dogs of all breeds and ages.

I specialize in boarding high energy dogs, young puppies/untrained dogs, and dogs with behavioral problems like aggression or separation anxiety.

Excellent experience. Schwartz seemed to have enjoyed his visit.
Great experience. R'Kenia was flexible with both drop off and pick up times, and her dog and children were great with my pets. Would definitely use again if I'm in the area.
R'Kenia and her family were so sweet when hosting my Pepper. She was informative and it was truly simplistic. I will be using her again in the near future.
